A straightforward strategy allows for the synthesis of storable bicyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbenes (BICAACs), which feature enhanced σ-donating and π-accepting properties compared to monocyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbenes (CAACs). Due to the bicyclo[2.2.2]octane skeleton, the steric environment around the carbene center is different from that of CAACs and similar to that observed in classical N-heterocyclic carbenes. The different electronic properties of BICAACs as compared to CAACs allow for ligand exchange reactions not only at a metal center, but also at main group elements.
